That is just one fault of your logic Fact - Israelis have been killed by terrorists released in swaps. Releasing terrorists is not just the lives of Shalit and Palestinian prisoners. Many of these Palestinian 'political prisoners' are children and women caught with pipe bombs or trying to stab gaurds at checkpoints. Political my ass. It is difficult to feel bad for Palestinian prisoners watching tvs in jail and communicating with the world and red cross, when no one even knows how Shalit has been treated. As you say yourself, releasing them accomplishes nothing positive until a final solution of Palestinian nationhood. At such a time, a deal should be worked out. Your black and white view is simplistic and naive, just like the Oslo accords and the 'peace' dreams that led to intifadas.
